Contact information




The service is consultant-led and provides a comprehensive advisory service on all aspects of orthodontics offering advanced restorative dentistry, orthognathic surgery or dentoalveolar surgery.

The departments provide an advisory service for people who have been referred with problems which affect the teeth, gums, mouth, jaws, face and neck.

Treatment is available to correct complex problems that need specialist expertise or equipment and is provided on an outpatient or day care basis.The team is linked to the Regional Cleft Service at Guy’s Hospital and carries out the orthodontic component of treatment for local people who have cleft lip and palate.  

Priorities for treatment services are given to joint care with other specialists, patients with significant congenital or acquired oral abnormalities and those with a significant medical history or a disability. Once the specialist component has been delivered, the patient is returned to the primary care provider (usually their own dentist) for continued maintenance.  

Some cases are treated for the specialist part of their care within the hospital service.
